Healing Centered Approaches to Screen and Intervene for Social Determinants of Health Including Intimate Partner Violence (A Paper)
Intimate Partner Violence (IPV), Human Trafficking (HT) and Exploitation are key social determinants of health and significantly exacerbate other social determinants – contributing to homelessness, job and food insecurity, social connectedness and poor mental and behavioral health. As health centers consider SDOH and health equity strategies – there’s opportunity to integrate support for their patients/clients around IPV/HT/E. This paper describes evidence-based strategies for responding to IPV – and offers an approach for health care providers and decision makers that can also be applied to all efforts to address the social determinants of health.
